Boombardier archmonster pun

I was amused by a lot of the new archmonster names, but I can't help but think that Bigbadabooum the Elementary (Boombardier arch) could be improved.

I understand that "the Elementary" is being used in this context to refer to an easy difficulty for something (per bada bing bada boom's meaning and general use). But the usage of "elementary" in this way only reminds me of Sherlock Holmes' "Elementary, my dear Watson." It doesn't pair well with the distinctly American phrase that immediately brings to mind classic performances of 20th century Italian-American cinema for me.

I suggest changing "elementary" to something that draws more from American slang, or something a character in The Godfather or Italian-American NYC might say. The first thing that comes to mind for me is "easy peasy." But the monster's design lends itself well to something referencing "bullseye!" too.
